I had one about 2 decades ago and loved it then. I gave it to a girl who was moving to a large city. Eventually the lack of a carry knife just eventually got to me. So I got another. This one is an enormous improvement. The blade is like wet ice against wet ice it opens and closes so cleanly and slick. I am convinced there is some kind of bearing in there. Opening it is about as good and quick as a switchblade. I push on the little tab on the back which pushes the blade out just a scosh and the slightest flick of the wrist does the rest. It can all be one smooth movement. Closing it is similar: I just pull with a thumb on a little tab and flick the blade closed. There is a gripping serration on the back of the blade at the heel and in front where an index finger would go. It fits the hand well, I'm happy. Just gotta remember to leave it in the vehicle if police ever ask me to step out.
I just purchased a very nice James Swan draw knife for my aspiring post and rung chair making venture I am about to embark on. The handles are adjustable, which I am not too crazy about, but the steel is excellent with these Swan tools. And the price was right. Can't wait to get the mail in the next week and tune it up and rejuvenate the handles and put it to wood. A little history on the James Swan Tool Co. http://www.davistownmuseum.org/bioSwan.html
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
